#1 reason is less recoil.

#2 reason, and only if you reload, is cost savings.

New to shotgun shell reloading. Load 7/8 shell now using a WAA12L or CB0178-12 gray wad. Could I use that wad for 3/4 oz. ??


Yes - but you'll probably notice on your crimps are concave in (because there isn't enough shot).

I reload on a single stage MEC, and find a couple cheerios in the wad fills the volume nicely. You'd have to be a little more aware on a progressive, but probably not a big deal once you get the hang of it.

Or, just buy some CB0175-12 wads, made for 3/4 ounce 12 gauge loads. It's essentially identical to the CB0178-12 wad except there's a tiny space consuming bump at the bottom of the shot cup, and it's reddish pink instead of gray. You can also put a 20 gauge card wad into the bottom of the CB0178-12 shot cup to take up the extra room.

If you use a 7/8 oz wad, you will not have any crimp problems. I've loaded 50k of 7/8 8's, 8.5, and 9's, with a Remington hull, and if you do your part you will destroy all targets.
17.3 to 17.5 grains of Clay Dot pushes the load to 1200 FPS.
